Medicane: Mediterranean Hurricane

ⓒ ROBIN TOWNSEND

Beginning on the 26th of December and lasting 3 days a violent "Levant" storm or "Medicane" (mediterranean hurricane) hit the northeastern catalan or spanish coast also provoking a blizzard in the interior. Medicane is a term coined by british scientists Ernst and Matson in 1983. Here are some of the photographs I took throughout the assignment many of which were published extensively.
